Janananda Laksiri received his art education at the Vibhavi Academy of Fine Arts (VAFA) as well as from the National Design Centre in Sri Lanka. His academic training has given him a solid grounding in classical art techniques. Since then, however, he has branched out and his experience in electronic media and IT capabilities in many 2- and 3-D graphic software platforms has allowed him to generate breath-taking digital art and sensational multimedia installations.

His work, Mirror Images, an installation of a charred power pole with a flickering streetlamp surrounded by tall parallel mirrors, was considered by many as a major attraction at the Colombo Art Biennale in 2012. His works are highly charged with emotions and take the viewer beyond a vision of personal despair and misery in order to focus on the broader issues of contemporary society.
